University Heights UM Children's Center is located at 4002 Otterbein Ave. We are just across the street from the University of Indianapolis.

   We offer childcare for children 6 weeks of age through Pre-Kindergarten. We have partnered with the United Way to achieve Level 3 status with the state of Indiana's Paths to Quality program.

    Come check us out. We are open from 7 am - 5:30 pm Monday - Friday. Call (317) 787-5865 for an appointment.

Child Safety

   We take your child's safety seriously. Our doors are locked while children are present with the exception of a church related event in which an usher is posted at all unlocked doors. Each parent receives a key fob that allows them to enter the building during childcare hours.

   Our staff has been trained to respond appropriately in natural and man-made disasters as well as being CPR certified and first aid trained.

Our Staff

    Each of our staff must follow the state of Indiana's rules and regulations as well as complete age appropriate training including off campus classes, online class and professional development days.

    All staff also must submit to a criminal background check, fingerprinting and drug screen.
